Be it foreigners or locals, everybody present at the concert rendered the song of love and unity in Bangla titled Ami Tomay Bhalobasi, written and composed by the Korean pianist Lim Dong Chang, on Wednesday at the residence of Korean ambassador in Baridhara, Dhaka.
Local musicians also performed with the visiting Korean troupe that rendered another similar love song in Korean language at the concert titled Charm of Korea.
The third edition of the concert was organised on the very date when a diplomatic relations had been signed between People’s Republic of Bangladesh and Republic of Korea in 1973.
Seven skilled Korean musicians and five local musicians performed at the programme highlighting the friendly relation between the two countries.
Korean Ambassador to Dhaka Lee Yun-Young and Mustafa Kamal, secretary (bilateral, training and consular) of the ministry of foreign affairs addressed the audience on the various fields of co-operations.
The show began with the presentation of traditional Bangla songs by Nobonita Chowdhury and Labik Kamal Gaurob. Nobonita and Labik in solo presented baul songs, composed by Fakir Lalon Shah, Shah Abdul Karim, Durbeen Shah and others, synchronised with the acoustics of dhol, guitar and drums.
Subsequently, pianist Lim Dong Chang and Korean traditional string instrument player Kim Young Kil presented a duet instrumental number. The well composed improvisational piece of the western piano with the Korean ajaeng delighted the august audience.
In fact, the seven internationally acclaimed Korean musicians moved the audience sometimes fusing their traditional music with the western acoustics and sometimes presenting pure western sonatas composed by the world famous musicians like WA Mozart, R Falvo and others.
All of these songs highlighted the themes of peace, friendship and love.
